Teaching methods and general organization

 

Teaching will follow a face-to-face (in-person), virtual (online) or mixed model according to the instructions of the competent authorities. In principle, we expect to follow the mixed teaching model for the 2021-22 academic year.

* In case of in-person teaching: The weekly schedule of in-person activities is distributed in three hours of theory class that includes practice.

* In case of mixed teaching required by the health situation (this is the expected model): If the health situation allows it and the necessary conditions are met, we expect to have between 50% and 75% of in-person activities. In general, when having an occupancy rate of 50%, students will attend in-person for a week and will follow class on streaming for the following week.

* In case on-line teaching is required by the health situation: The time ranges of mixed teaching are maintained but all teaching will be carried out in an online format, prioritizing synchronous sessions for the subject dynamization.

As far as possible, the gender perspective will be incorporated in the development of the subject. In addition, teachers will be attentive to those specific gender needs that students may raise, such as being able to choose a partner of the same gender if group work is carried out or being able to pose challenges against the gender gap.
